National award-winning film editor T.E Kishore, who was undergoing treatment for a brain stroke, breathed his last on Friday at Vijaya hospital in Chennai
Kishore was 36 and died at the Vijaya Hospital. He is survived by his parents.
“Kishore was hospitalised few days ago after he suffered a brain stroke while working in a studio. He slipped into coma and failed to respond to the doctor’s treatment,” a family source said. He was eventually declared brain dead by doctors late on Friday.
Kishore’s organs were donated, and his body would be kept for paying homage at his office in Vadapalani on Saturday morning.
Kishore, who started his career with 2009 critically-acclaimed Tamil thriller “Eeram”, was the former associate of renowned editor B. Lenin.
In 2011, Kishore pocketed a National Film Award for his work in Dhanush-starrer “Aadukalam”.
He is also known for his work in films such as “Ethir Neechal”, “Udhayam NH4″, “Aarohanam” and “Nedunchaalai”. He has over 30 films to his credit.
